Squawking when I try to boot it up

When I turn on my notebook, all I get is a high pitched squawk/squeel. Has anyone else experienced this problem? If so, how did you fix it? I've tried taking the battery out and replacing it, but that only works short term before I have to do it again.

I have a Dell Latitude D630. When the laptop is switched on it emits a high pitched scream and will not boot. I disabled microphone in BIOS and machine boots fine. Re-enabled microphone and same probl


It sounds like a driver problem, normally the microphone is off on-boot-up. It should only be opened by a program wanting to use it.

Have you tried turning it off in the operating system, rather than the BIOS?

Driver for Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-K16D


Suggest you try this, Chris;

Go to Device Manager.

[WinXP:
Start > Right-click on My Computer > Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the list > Left-click on the Hardware tab. Left-click on Device Manager

Win Vista/ Win 7:
Windows logo button > Right-click on Computer > follow the above ]

When Device Manager loads click on the + sign, to the left of DVD/CD-ROM drives.
Right-click right on the name of the optical drive. (CD/DVD drive)

Left-click on Uninstall.

A Microsoft 'squawk box' will come up; "Warning you are about to uninstall this device"
It's OK. Click on OK.

Now close all windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Restart your computer.

(WinXP: Start > Turn Off Computer > Restart
Win Vista/Win 7: Windows logo button > Restart )

When Windows fully loads you will get a pop-up, out of the system tray, "Found new hardware device", and perhaps another one, "Found Pioneer DVD-RW"

Windows has the habit of losing drivers. Let's see if this 'slaps Windows around'.

No audio


Driver: Small piece of software that allows the Operating System to communicate with a device.

Windows XP and Windows 7 are two examples of an O/S.
The audio chipset is the device in this case.

http://support.fujitsupc.com/CS/Portal/supportsearch.do

Click on the blue underlined - Audio - under the appropriate Operating System you are using.
Since you didn't state what O/S you are using, I am going to choose Windows XP Home for an example.

Click on the blue underlined Audio, under the Windows XP Compatible Drivers subheading.

Under the Fujitsu Software License Agreement, click on Accept.
A small window will come up on the right -
Opening S5582_AUDIO_WINXP-HOME.exe

Click on Save File.
Another small window will come up on the left.
Let the file fully download. Then DOUBLE-click right on the file name.
If a Microsoft 'squawk box' comes up ignore it. Click on Run.

At the bottom of the next 3 small windows, click on Next, Next, and Finish.

If you are not asked to do so restart your computer.
(Start > Turn Off Computer > Turn Off )

Loud high pitched squeel through speakers and will not boot-up either from my Acer 4150LMi


Run the check disk utility.

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Left laptop on bed in morning screne would not appear


try reseating the battery but before your return the battery after romving it Press and hold down the power button for 5-10 seconds then return the batt and try turning system on if it boots that will be good but if not try reseating the Hard Drive from the system then try booting again ^_^

Possibly the fan is not spinning in your computer, but if the above still does not let the system boot into windows and nothing is on the screen and u hear high pitched noise most probably the Processor on your system is toast only thing that can cause a no post with a high pitched sound is your processor

Hi grade laptop makes high pitched noise and the screen is blank


High pitch noise usually means the inverter board that drives the lamp behind the LCD display. If the rest of the laptop appears to work, for example, hard drive light blinking while booting, try hooking up an external monitor and hit whatever function key that switches you to the external monitor. If everything works, you may want to replace the inverter board yourself. It is not horribly hard if you are very careful. But it is not exactly a walk in the park kind of work.

If the rest of the laptop does not appear to work, the DC-DC step down power circuit is probably shot, which will also make a high pitch noise. In this case, you will have to replace the motherboard. Replacing a motherboard is a major pain in the behind. In most case, it is not worth the trouble if you have an older model.

High Pitch noise from my B130


Sounds like a hardware problem, but it could be software.

What happens when you mute the volume?

Does it sound like its coming out of the speakers or somewhere else?
